The Big Lebowski (1998)
(R) 117 mins

"Like, that's just…your opinion…man." Ah, the immortal words of 'the dude.' Jeff Bridges plays the title character, who, let's just say he wears a bathrobe in almost every scene. He meanders his way into a kidnapping plot and somehow manages to be the central figure between 4 interested parties. But the point of the film isn't about the pain plot theme, it's watching him and John Goodman interact with each other and all the other major characters. And I gotta say, Goodman is funnier in this film in probably his funniest role that I've ever seen him in. His split-second temper coupled with Bridges' everlasting mellowness is what makes the film. Not to mention the side roles of John Turturro, Julianne Moore and Steve Buscemi. "You're like a child who wanders into a film halfway through and asks what happened." Haha. Good stuff.
